”I’m performing on the Drake Contemporary Alto Sax mouthpiece. This mouthpiece is by far THEE BEST mouthpiece I’ve ever experienced! The reaction of the mouthpiece is solid, very solid! It does not in any way, shape, or form, hold you back as a player. Never have I felt a hard rubber mouthpiece cut through sound like this! Aaron Drake is on to something good with this design! When I first experienced this, I was blown away. I could definitely tell hard work & dedication was put into this mouthpiece. After speaking with Aaron Drake, I knew then that they were indeed. Each mouthpiece is personally handcrafted by him, & the dedication that he has put into each mouthpiece shows. I’m very excited about being a part of the Drake family! Learn more at Saxappeal’s Site

“Simply put, these mouthpieces are incredible. The ceramic gives these mouthpieces very complex and interesting tone colors as well as a great sense of projection. Combine that with Aaron’s deep understanding about mouthpiece mechanics and extraordinary workmanship and the result is one of the best mouthpieces I have ever played!”.
